Touch Table designed by Studioilse for Zanat is part of the Touch Collection. The special quality of this product line lies in the hand-carved surface that engages our instinctive impulse to touch and feel. The design reflects our hunger for more tactile surroundings in the digital age.
The carvings on the tabletop make it uniquely tactile. They take three workdays to execute and—since the craftsmen carve the pieces at random, without drawings—each piece is unique as no two carved surfaces will ever look the same.
The table is deliberately designed narrower to create a cozy and intimate dining atmosphere. Despite what might be perceived, the table surface is easily cleaned with a sea sponge included with each table delivery or other soft cleaning cloth and carvings do not lessen stability even for small glasses.
A new bigger and more elegant version of the Touch table was launched at Salone del Mobile 2019, to celebrate tactility as an essential human need. The legs in cast bronze will enhance both the elegance and tactility of this exquisite piece.

Craftsmanship is the essence of the Bosnian furniture brand Zanat. For four generations, the Nikšić family has been designing and building heirloom-quality, hand-carved furniture using a primitive technique that originated in a small village near their hometown of Konjic. Today this woodcarving technique is officially inscribed on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.
